We will start the day with a short walking tour in the Notre Dame Island
, also known as the Ile de la Cité
. Stroll along the Seine River and admire the Conciergerie, prison and last home of Marie Antoinette.
Then the tour guide will show us the Notre Dame Cathedral
with its flying buttresses and gothic architecture. Your guide will unfold the histories and mysteries forever captured within these walls, from days of antiquity to the present. Once we've admired the exterior of this impressive edifice, we will continue to nearby Sainte Chapelle
where we could have the Skip-the-Line access and straight into this hidden wonder of Paris.
At midday, we will have free time to enjoy lunch on own. Our guides will be there to assist with recommendations. Then we will go for a short walk to the Louvre. The expert guide will lead us straight past the long lines and straight to the best masterpieces. We could see Michelangelo's slaves, and of course the Mona Lisa, probably the most famous painting in the world.
This full-day tour will introduce us to some of the most iconic sights of Paris. Expert local guides help to not only to skip the long lines and navigate the crowds, but also to get most out of the time ensuring that we get the very best out of a day.
